Many of the home renovation and extension projects we work on in London involve bespoke joinery and carpentry, and this is one of our speciality areas. As a company Absolute Building and Construction are members of both the Federation of Master Builders and we are a member of the Trust Mark Scheme specifically for our joinery and carpentry work.
The bespoke joinery and carpentry work that we do ranges from structural elements such as staircases through to kitchen cabinets, wardrobes and shelves. Below are a few examples of the type of bespoke joinery projects we have completed for our clients in London.
Room Partition with Built in Wardrobes
The owners of this property were turning a fairly ordinary master bedroom into a luxury ensuite space. To do this they wanted to put in a partition between the bedroom and ensuite areas. We built them a classic paneled wall with large centrally opening floor to ceiling double doors to lead between the two spaces. The partition that we built serves as double function as it also conceals additional built in wardrobe and storage space. This helps to maintain the luxury feel of the room without compromising on practicality. When painted, and combined with new light fixtures, this bespoke built partition really transformed the space:
Family Room Built-in Storage
The family who own this property had extended their house at the back to create a new family room area with a large glass wall facing onto the garden. They wanted to keep the space fairly minimalist while having space to keep the children’s toys and all of the other odds and ends that usually clutter up family spaces. To do this we built a large storage unit into the side wall of the space. Within the unit different cupboards and shelves were created as well as space to house the TV and other electronics. Because the new built in storage would be such a large feature of the room it was important that our joinery work was up to the highest standards. Small details such as door gaps and hinge alignment can really spoil this type of work if not done properly. In this case the finished storage became a big design feature of the room and really adds to it’s character.
The owners of this home are avid readers and have a large book collection. They wanted to keep as many books on display as possible without compromising living space. We built them this custom shelving system to wrap around, and above, the doorframe. This makes use of the normally wasted space above the door and creates an impressive feature wall at the same time.
Attic Space Bespoke Built in Wardrobe
As a company we do a lot of work on loft conversions in London. One of the challenges with loft conversions is that the slope of the roof always ends up creating awkward spaces which standard shop bought furniture won’t fit into. With our bespoke joinery experience we can easily make use of these awkward spaces by building in bespoke storage areas and wardrobes. In the example below the family had converted an attic room into a bedroom for their daughter and needed plenty of wardrobe space to accommodate her clothes. We were able to build a bespoke wardrobe for her, taking into account the angle of the roof. We built in a set of draws and plenty of shelves to make the most of the space. The finished wardrobe was painted to fit in with the rest of the decor.
Walk in Wardrobes and Shoe Storage
The ultimate luxury for many of our customers is to have their own walk in wardrobe. This can be as much about creating space to appreciate their clothes aa it is about the practicality of dressing and a number of our walk in wardrobe projects we have done have includes cases designed for showing off shoe collections.
